Abstract: The development of PTLD is a rare severe adverse event following ASCT. We report on a child with DS who developed PTLD following autologous transplant for relapsed Hodgkin’s disease. He was successfully treated with cyclophosphamide, prednisone and rituximab. We also present a comprehensive review of the literature of PTLD in pediatric patients following ASCT.
